Well, actually...

how long does the software update take? an internet connected grill is dumb as gently caress but i feel like having to wait 15 minutes to start the grill is not actually going to ruin thanksgiving.

i guess they could have really hosed it up bad and it's been sitting there on the update page for hours in which case lol. lmao.

some ad wizard came up with WIFIRE and they just had to use it regardless of whether they should

Well, actually...

what does wifi on a grill even do? i assume it gives you temperature notifications on your phone because that's a no brainer 10 cent feature, even though it's stupid. starting it remotely seems extremely dangerous but i suppose they could have done that too. what other benefits features could there even be?

it's a wood pellet grill that lets you dial in precise temps so it's basically a wifi range you have to manually refuel. at least it's pellets and not propane/natural gas lol

basically the same justification as having an app to control your oven. "convenience"

the crazy thing to me is smoker/wood pellet/charcoal is best when you have some time to gently caress around or are retired. so this is for people who have nothing better to do and who are also incredibly lazy. oh and have no idea how to wisely spend money I guess

re: your gif i am a propane griller and find it a good mix of performance daddery and efficiency/science

but i would never add wifi to an explosive fuel source in or adjacent to my house lol

our new range can do wifi but lol nope. the best new feature to me (besides air fry mode) is you can set a timer to have it shut itself off (or optionally shut off and throw into keep warm mode). good failsafe

Well, actually...

smart thermostats are the wackiest poo poo to me. i have a plain old daily programmable one with a black and white LCD and i set it up once and haven't hosed with the programming since. if i want to override it i walk up to it and press a button a few times -- no digging through my phone for an app. i have never felt like my daily heating/cooling situation was so complicated that I needed an AI to figure it out for me. nor am I loving with it enough that it would ever learn anything anyway. nor do I care to connect the giant machine full of fire that lives in my closet to the loving internet.

it's the textbook example of an answer to a question nobody asked. the complete opposite of good design. argh

my Nest thermostat stopped working right two days ago. if you tried to change the temperature it would turn on the furnace and then a second later turn it off and reset the temps back to what it wanted. had been using it fine for years but apparently it decided we weren't allowed to control our own temperatures anymore.

had to factory reset it to fix it which made it clear the problem was Software.

smart thermostats are elaborate occupancy sensors, if they're useful for anything. when I was younger I thought it was cool, but any decent configuration defeats the benefits of the bulk of their features

that they're appliances that can out-live multiple mergers until they become a google ad platform is as big an admonition as any against being too enthralled to whiz-bang products

I appreciate being able to control the temperature from anywhere in the house, but that's the extent at which I want a device to be "smart". I also have a wifi-connected pellet smoker and it's quite convenient to be able to monitor the meat and adjust temperatures while working from home.
